Subject: Betty-boards... :]
Love the sound of this show. Definitely a Betty-Board [Betty Cantor-Jackson live mix and recording] We have all come to know them well if you are perusing much of the Dead's heyday. Charlie Miller was lucky in getting his hands on the masters and did a good job of digitizing them, but the REAL thanks goes to Betty for her mix and recordings. When reading so many show reviews, that reality sometimes gets lost. I don't often read consideration for Betty and how/why these recordings really sound so great. I've been working with her over 12 years now and have talked with her many times about how she was mixing, mics used, recording decks, mix board, etc.., and her answers are too long for this post. For her more recent recordings, check-out Chris Robinson Brotherhood "Betty's S.F. Blends, Vol. 1" from the Great American Music Hall - SF released in 2014 I believe. Phenomenal spacing, warmth, and breadth. And these shows were recorded and mixed on the fly much like her work with JGB and the GD. Her current mixes can also be heard on a weekly basis for the world-famous Glide Memorial Church - SF. Go to www.Glide.org and look for the podcast or go here: http://glidesf.podomatic.com/ - Cheers...

Subject: sometimes we think too much
It's too easy to get caught up in comparing this to that. Is this the BEST scarlet fire? Are there other shows that are even better? I fall into this mindset as much as anyone.

Forget all of that. This show kills. Garcia is blowing the joint up from the drop and the band elevates right with him. All of the "big" tunes are highlights (he even sounds good singing Terrapin - so rare in '78!) and I don't hear a single lull besides the off-kilter Passenger and the unfortunate AUD patch for Candyman.

If you want to list Scarlet Fires or Let it Grows that are better, more power to you...I recommend you just spark one up and let this thing rip.

The nights before and after are worthy "highlights" shows with strong moments and the more typical '78 ebb and flow. This is a Big Show, make no mistake - a heavy hitter. Enjoy.

Subject: Great sound, several top notch jerry moments
Definitely agree on the sound quality- the couple of times that a patch is needed (playin for example) gives you an idea how stellar the quality is. 1978 is not usually among my favorites, but there is some really strong stuff here. Standout performances by Jerry in Half-step, Tennessee Jed, Let it Grow, and Fire.
Reviewer: Folkhippy - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - February 18, 2013
Subject: AMAZING sound and performance
Charlie Miller's soundboard tapes are usually superior than most others, but this one really stands out. It sounds way better than any of the Dick's Picks from this year. While the performance isn't as well-known as some other dates in February, April, or May, it is every bit as good. The second set is one that dreams are made of. Thanks so much for sharing.
